Submission to the Review of Australian Higher Education

The Dusseldorp Skills Forum, in conjunction with Dr Bob Birrell of the Centre for Urban Research and Population at Monash University, submitted a significant report and recommendations to the Submission to the Review of Australian Higher Education.

Our submission concludes that:

  • The number of places for domestic university students should be substantially increased given the number of young people not involved in post school training and the likely increased demand for analytic and communication skills.
  • Australia’s higher education system needs to be geared for the demands in work and research created by a carbon-constrained future.
  • There should be a closer integration of TAFE programs with university courses.
